Praise Center is a place where the whole family can grow together and grow closer to God. As we grow in our faith, our lives can be deeply impacted when we use the gifts and abilities that God has given uniquely to each of us. If you want to be a part of our vibrant community, here is how you can learn, serve and grow. Each opportunity provides a way to share the Word of God with others.
THE PRAISE PANTRY
In the Town of Dumfries, hunger is closer than anyone can imagine. The weakened economy, increased unemployment rate, and high costs of living in such an affluent community have made it difficult for many to afford their basic needs. The mission of The Praise Pantry is to reflect the love of Christ as seen in Matthew 25:35-36 and to increase access to food for those in need.
Even though marriage is one of the most important institutions, it is under the most attack – internally and externally. Praise Center gives married couples the opportunity to discuss a variety of topics including Marriage and Money, Getting Ready for Kids, Shepherding Children, and Marriage and Sex.
Accountability among men is an act of integrity. Accountability is designed to protect, encourage and develop men of all ages. Our men’s fellowship is designed with accountability in mind, while providing a Christ-like outlet for fellowship.
SMALL GROUPS | #CoffeeBreak
Small groups foster a sense of community, develop deeper relationships with one another and promote spiritual growth and development. They also provide beneficial fellowship and a safe place for new members to meet new families and learn ways to improve their lifestyle. Groups encourage accountability and unity in the church body.
Praise Center’s Women’s Groups give the ladies in our church special times of interaction. Our women’s groups are times of Bible study, prayer and of course, food. These groups provide a refreshing discipleship opportunity for the women of the church.
Each Sunday morning, children get to participate in their own classes. Bible lessons are taught so that every child gets to participate and learn.
The young adult group of Praise Center provides a welcoming atmosphere for college and early-career aged young people. Life can get complicated once you cross that nebulous threshold into adulthood. We are dedicated to seeing each young adult succeed and helping them navigate through whatever decisions they have to make.
“Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen.”
